[quote=“Maoman”][quote=“antonxie”]I can feel the discrimination here in Taiwan. I’m Chinese Indonesian. First time I came here, I apply color=red[/color] for teaching in Cram school and English Courses for Kids.
But I won’t even get an interview reason being I’m not white nor I’m color=red[/color] from North America.
Hate this facts color=red[/color] about Taiwan. But I just have to live with it. The best job I got was waitering for a almost a month before I finally got a job at a small internet startups (sic). That gives me the idea of office life color=red[/color] here in Taipei and eventually lead me to a better job now. My personally color=red[/color] view is, most people are racist. (check the definition of the word racist in your dictionary.) Even I myself am sometimes racist. In South east asia, Chinese from different origin color=red[/color] will discriminate eachother based on their origin or dialect spoken. In Indonesia, Javanese discriminates Batak, Manadonese discriminates Padangers, etc. ad nauseum ad infinitum. Taiwanese on the other hand loves color=red[/color] two things-Anything American and anything Japanese. Now Anything Korean is added to the list now that the Korean TV series and musics invades color=red[/color] Taiwan. Admit it, we’re all human, and we’re all racist one way or another.[/quote]
Anton, do you realize how many English mistakes you make in your writing? I’m not talking about typographical errors, I’m talking about a poor command of the language. Now everything is relative, and maybe in Indonesia you’re a star. However, I wouldn’t give you an interview if your resume had even one English error in it. And if your writing in any way reflects your spoken English, you would be pegged as a non-native speaker in a flash. (You had me at “Hello”) Maybe it’s not racism. Maybe it’s you. [/quote]
I realized now:) Thank you for pointing out. Now I’m thankful that I didn’t get the interview. Otherwise I might have ruined some kid’s future:)
You’re the best. The most literate poster on segue. I’m amazed with your command in Latin too.
Everything in Latin sounds profound.
